Crochet Patchwork Squares Blanket
Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®
Square = 10 x 10 in. (25.5 x 25.5 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
1) Blanket consists of 20 Squares. Make each Square following instructions for Basic Square, using colors indicated in color sequence.
2) To change color, work last st until 3 loops remain on hook, yarn over with new color, and draw yarn through all loops on hook to complete stitch.
3) For ease in assembly, label squares as you finish each.
